About three weeks ago, I posted a survey asking people to rate the amount of margin they have in their lives. The three items that were rated were as follows:
- Please rate how much TIME MARGIN you have in your life (1 to 10)
- Please rate how much FINANCIAL MARGIN you have in your life (1 to 10)
- Please rate how much RELATIONAL MARGIN you have in your life (1 to 10)
Here are the basic results charts:
- In general, people seem to be feeling better about their relational margins than their time and financial margins.
- People were very reluctant to rate any category as having “Plenty” of margin
- TIME MARGIN appears to have no direct correlation to FINANCIAL MARGIN
- TIME MARGIN had a direct correlation to RELATIONAL MARGIN. As people felt better about their time margin, they felt that they had better relational margin.
- FINANCIAL MARGIN appears to have a direct correlation with RELATIONAL MARGIN. The better the financial situation, the better the relational margin.
MORE THAN ANYTHING – it was YOUR COMMENTS that you shared that caught me off-guard. Your transparency was amazing, and I am going to be sharing some of these anonymous comments over the next few days.
